As someone on the fairly extreme left, I'm on record (among those who listen to me rant) on doubting Obama's cred all along. There are many on the left (including me) who prefer localized decision-making and authority over central government action, believe it or not.

Thanks for the comment, but I gotta tell you you made me cringe with "drill, baby, drill." Because it was a repeated chant at the Republican convention, that phrase serves only to associate the disaster with the Republican Party -- which I don't think is what you want. I agree that there needs to be a lot of drilling for many years to come, but I don't think that phrase is helpful.
